Updating the Necron Retinue List

Postby Jodrell » February 24th, 2012, 4:22 pm

Last year GW released a new codex for the Necrons which significantly expanded the units available. Excluding all the vehicles they introduced, they added the following infantry units:

  • Overlords
  • Crypteks
  • Triarch Praetorians
  • Lychguard
  • Deathmarks
  • Pyrrhian Eternals
  • a bunch of named characters

They also changed some of the units (ie Wraiths became Canoptek Wraiths, Tomb Spyders became Canoptek Spyders) and got rid of Pariahs altogether.

So I'm probably going to update the retinue list for Necrons to cover these units. When I first wrote the retinue list, I ignored Scarabs, Destroyers and Spyders, but should they be included?

I'd include as much as possible
don't exclude the Pariahs by the way; they might be the zoats of the future :o)

I got a chance to playtest this retinue list last night and came up with some changes.

I've decided to junk the split grit roll rule as it's a bit complicated, and also a bit cheesy, as Necrons will almost certainly pass the first grit roll to stand up after being knocked down.

So I've changed Necrons to have a standard 3+ grit, but added a new special rule called Reanimation Protocols. This gives them a reroll on failed grit tests.

Updated version: ITEN-Necron-Retinue-2.1.docx
